Festival Week Programme For Schools Published

Preparations for the 2019 Science Festival Week are well under way and as a starter we are now able to publish the programme of daytime events for schools.

These sessions, designed for primary schools (home educators also welcome), run during the daytime on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the Science Festival week (November 12th, 13th, 14th).

This year we are delighted to have two people known from the BBC and beyond, Maddie Moate and Greg Foot, plus Live Science Presenter extraordinaire Jon Wood.

You can find all the details on our Schools page.

13th June – the next Science Café

The warmer weather is here and with it our midsummer Science Cafe.

One timely topic of the evening’s trio is the science of staying safe in the water. Along side this we will discover what dirty teeth tell us about the past and the technology behind the famous (infamous?) Bitcoin: good for much more than just for a dodgy currency. An evening of useful and entertaining information!

Tickets are just £5 (under 18s free) so come and join us at 7.30pm on Thursday June 13th for another great evening. The full details are here on the Science Café page.

Spring is coming and so is the first Science Café of 2019

We’ve been a bit over quiet since the last post in the run up to the 2018 Science Festival. Excuse: it was a great, busy, success and we’ve been recovering ever since.

A bit weak really, but anyway we are now well into 2019, planning is under way for this year’s festival but before then we have 3 great Science Cafés to keep you informed and entertained.

With spring just around the corner (we live in hope!) we kick off on Thursday March 14th at 7.30pm with the usual diverse range of topics: phages, football science and decontaminating grandad!

Tickets are just £5 (under 18s free) so come and join us for another great evening. The full details are here on the Science Café page.
